In the study of the natural hilly taken as burial mounds, our attention was attracted little of Late burial, burial, which turned out to have been committed at rates consistent with the basic provisions of orthodox Islam (orientation buried facing Mecca (Kaaba), the body turn to the right, the lack of accompanying materials). Despite the evidence of written sources, pointing to the early penetration of Islam in the nomadic environment, IXth-XIIth centuries, like the burial were not detected previously by researchers as a Muslim. The result then, appeared information gap there between and archaeological research materials. Presumably, further detailed skeletal fixation position in without inventory graves later nomads in a variety of scattered in the Northern Black Sea steppes, will select among them the burial committed by the Muslim rite.
